Best womens casual shoes: wide width flats

Born is my new favorite brand. I think they make the best wide width flats.

The Born Julianne ballet flats fit so well that I’ve bought it in multiple colors. I think they are one of the best ballet flats for wide feet or the best wide width flats. I’d even go as far as to say they are cute shoes for wide feet.

My black Born Julianne flats are just a single wide but fit like a double wide shoe. These best flats for womens wide feet even have arch support built-in inside the innersole of the shoe.

You wouldn’t expect such great support from a flat, but these Born Julianne shoes have got it. It’s one of the reasons I love them so much and am wearing them pretty much daily. They really are the best flats for wide feet–in my humble opinion.

Do Born shoes come in wide width?

So, to answer the question, “Do Born shoes come in wide width?” Yes, they do. But, like I said above, they come in a single wide width but they fit like a double or extra wide width. Or, at least they do for me.

You can buy Born shoes through Zappos.com. I paid $85 for these best wide width flats. Trust me–it will be money well spent.

Do Born shoes have a lifetime warranty

Born shoes do not have a lifetime warranty. However, if you are unhappy with your purchase, haven’t worn the shoes and it’s within 30 days of when you bought them, you can return them.

Also, Zappos has a great return policy. It’s not a lifetime guarantee, but they do stand behind the shoes they sell. So if you bought your Born shoes on Zappos and are having an issue, definitely reach out to Zappos customer support.

Best women’s casual shoes: wide width sandals

As I’ve mentioned I’ve done well buying wide width sandals from Josef Seibel. I’ve also had luck with Birkenstock, even though they aren’t marketed as wide width sandals. However, the footbed is wide enough, in most instances, that the shoes will fit a wide foot.

I’ve also had good luck with wide width women’s sandals from Munro and Rockport Cobb Hill. Again, I buy most of my sandals on Nordstrom.com and Zappos.com because I know they’re going to carry the wide widths–even extra wide width–shoes this woman’s feet needs.

Best Wide Width Shoes for Women: Sandals

Best women’s casual shoes: slippers

It’s not easy to find slippers to fit my extra wide feet. That’s because I need a wide toe box in all of my footwear. If I could wear sandals or Birkenstocks all year long, I’d be in heaven. No worries about the wide toe box there.

However, I was extremely surprised to learn that Ugg makes a wide toe box slipper. In fact, I was so surprised and happy with them that I bought myself two pairs. I have to hide them from my twentysomething daughters when they come to visit, or else they’ll steal them.

Anyway, you can get these Ugg slippers in a wide width. Probably why they have a wide toe box, too.

Another brand that has wide toe box slippers? L.L. Bean. Sure, you might have to buy a men’s size to fit a woman’s wide foot, but who cares? Men’s slippers come in a EE width. Plus, if they are comfortable and work for you, that’s what matters.

Finally, one more brand with slippers made for those needing a wide toe box: Skechers. You can find Skechers slippers in a D width. These are wide enough, even for my double-wide feet.

Best brands for womens wide casual shoes

As far as brands of casual shoes go, here are the ones that I’ve felt work best for my feet. We’re talking about those aforementioned wide width flats, sandals and slippers.

Finally, let me point out that some of the brands, below, fit my extra wide foot. However, they only sell shoes in a single wide. Well, they’re wide enough for me.
